. . . Is It Snake Oil or Salvation?

If you were to listen to public health officials, you would hear that unpasteurized milk is dangerous due to live pathogens. Our government spends millions to prosecute dairy farmers and buying groups where there has been no illness or injury due to selling or consuming raw milk.

Yet, demand for raw milk is growing rapidly as more and more informed consumers enjoy the benefits of good taste and good health that come with switching to pure, unprocessed milk. Again and again, consumers attribute improvements in their digestive problems, dental decay, and behavioral disorders to raw milk.

Come join us on August 3rd to hear Kimberly Hartke, publicist for the Weston A. Price Foundation, speak about her own personal experience with consuming raw milk and about the nutritional value, research, and food politics surrounding what many have come to believe is a sacred food and central to their whole-foods diet.

Sally Fallon Morell, in her review of Native American diets, asks the question, "How can we return to the good health the Indians enjoyed?" Quoting Weston A. Price, she declares that "(T)he formula for good health in the modern age begins with the products of 'a fine dairy herd' -- whole, raw unprocessed milk from cows that eat green grass...."

(quoted the Weston A. Price Foundation website)

So bring your questions and concerns about this highly controversial issue, truly one of the most important challenges American consumers face in their quest to restore our freedom to choose the food we want to eat.

As always, we will have a side table with yummy snacks of meat, cheese, veggies, nuts and other goodies, supplied by MOM's Organic Market, located in the Kmart shopping center on Elden Street in Herndon. We will also have some fresh, raw milk for anyone who would like to have a sample.
